Prime Minister Mikati, during his meeting on Thursday at the Vatican with Pope Francis, stressed that the war which has almost damaged coexistence, has taught us to protect this characteristic. “Today, we will make major efforts to preserve coexistence despite the ongoing challenges, as it is a guarantee of a future without discrimination,” he said.
“The Pope has expressed confidence in the Lebanese ability to overcome hardship, while emphasizing the importance of the continuation of the role played by the Lebanese and their interaction with their Arab environment,” Mikati went on.
“Pope Francis has affirmed that he will make all necessary efforts with international bodies to help Lebanon and restore peace and stability in the country,” the PM concluded.
Pope hoped that Lebanon would recover its role as a model of dialogue and link between the East and the West.
